Agent of Man City star confirms summer exit

Manchester City are set to lose Yaya Toure this summer after his agent, Dimitri Seluk, confirmed that he will be leaving, according to reports from Skysports.

The 32-year-old was keen to open talks with the club over a new deal, but with City yet to begin negotiations, the midfielder has decided to push for an exit.

Seluk admitted that the board promised to begin talks with his client, but because no advances were made, Toure will leave the Etihad in June.

“We have waited too long,” he said.

“Manchester City promised a deal but nothing has materialised so Yaya will leave in June.

“Yaya is disappointed of course. But he is a professional and he remains under contract so he will continue to do his best for City.”

Serie A giants Inter Milan are amongst the clubs considering a move for the player given that they are being managed by former City boss Roberto Mancini.

West Ham United are also said to have opened talks with the midfielder as they look to reinforce their squad ahead of a possible top four finish.

The Ivory Coast international has already featured 39 times in all competitions for his side this term, so far managing to score eight goals while providing another seven assists.
